PUBG Mobile Adds New Vikendi Snow Map Before PS4 And Xbox One
Just in time for the holidays.
Hot on the heels of its release on PC, Vikendi has arrived in the mobile version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. The new snow map is now available on both iOS and Android as a free update, and it comes alongside a handful of other new features.
Unlike PUBG's other maps thus far, Vikendi is 6x6 km large, making it smaller than Erangel and Miramar--both of which are 8x8 km--but larger than the 4x4 Sanhok. Its defining feature is its snow-covered terrain, which encompasses mountains, open fields, frozen lakes, and deserted villages.
The map also boasts some unique elements, including an exclusive vehicle--snowmobiles. Players will also be able to take part in snowball fights on the spawn island. You can take a closer look at the map in the trailer below.
In addition to Vikendi, the latest update for the mobile version of PUBG introduces cross-server matchmaking and improved anti-cheating measures. PUBG Corp. and Tencent have also added a firearm finish upgrade system, as well as "Lucky Treasure," which gives players a chance to get the Glacier - M416 after completing daily missions. You can find the full patch notes for the update on Reddit.
Vikendi arrived for the PC version of PUBG this week, following its release on the game's test server during The Game Awards earlier this month. PUBG Corp. also released the Vikendi: Survivor Pass on PC, which lets players unlock exclusive skins and rewards by completing certain milestones. Vikendi is slated to come to Xbox One and PS4 in January 2019.
